This was my first encounter with Reynolds, picking up this book second hand as part of my ongoing quest of exploring science fiction.
It turns out Chasm City
was a very pleasant read, and Reynolds an interesting writer. The main assets of the book were the dark, gritty setting and the pace of the story. Also interesting were the moral problems and implications of being able to transplant memories and identities. This was the driving force behind the story.
I'll keep an eye out for his other works.
